Eagles better win tonight.
As you can imagine, Mrs M’s spirits aren’t that great these days. (If you haven’t heard, here’s the bad news.) But she grew up outside Philadelphia and one thing that’s cheered her up is how well the Eagles have been doing. She’s been a lifelong fan of Philly’s sports teams of whom she’s proud, even of the Phillies. She’s also proud of Philly fans’ reputation as mean not just to opposing teams but to their home teams. They’re even mean to Santa Claus. You might remember the incident parodied in this video made by the Eagles. Mrs M does, and just thinking about it still cracks her up. She hopes it breaks you up too. (Don’t let on if you’ve already seen it.)
Fly, Eagles, fly!
